NSC-218G-DMIP Security Camera
4KUltra HD Resolution
Up to 100ftNight Vision IR Range
Powerful performance meets incredible design with our 4K vandal dome security camera. With 8MP of incredible 4K Ultra High Definition video and its 120dB Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), this camera will deliver the clearest and crispiest video every time. Plus, with its 100 foot infrared range and IP67 weatherproof rating, neither darkness nor crazy storms will get in the way of your surveillance.
But where this camera really shines is in its vandal-dome design. It’s small, compact, sleek, and modern. It looks great and fits just about anywhere. Its all-metal construction and its vandal-proof glass dome makes it nearly impossible for someone to come along and tamper with the lens or vandalize the camera.
This camera’s construction gives it a ton of benefits over bullet- or turret-style cameras. But there are many more reasons why this may be the perfect security camera for you. To learn more about its specifications and features, keep reading!
4K Ultra HD Resolution
The NSC-218G-DM captures video up to a resolution of 4K @ 15 FPS, which is 3840x2160 pixels. Every pixel added to your camera's picture gives you a higher image quality and more detail. So at 4K, you're going to get a crisper, cleaner, and more detailed image.
2.8mm Fixed Lens
The NSC-218G-DM has a 2.8mm Fixed Lens. That means it’s fixed at one length; it can't optically zoom in and out. The longer the focal length on a fixed lens camera, the more zoomed in it is and the more close-up detail you'll be able to see. But the shorter the focal length, the wider the field of view and the more area your surveillance will cover.
The NSC-218G-DM has a horizontal field of view of 102°.
IP67 Weatherproof Rating
This camera has an Ingress Protection (IP) rating of 67. This means the camera is completely protected from dust and other solid particles. It can also withstand being submerged in 3 feet of water for up to 30 minutes.
Rest assured that when you install this camera outside, it will have no problem braving the toughest of storms.
IK10 Vandalproof Rating
The NSC-218G-DM has an Impact Protection (IK) rating of 10, which is as high as the scale goes. If a vandal wants to try to bust open this camera, more power to them. Literally, they're going to need a lot more power, because this thing is indcredibly durable. That's why these dome-style cameras are often called vandal-proof domes, or vandal domes for short.
Up to 100ft Night Vision IR Range
When the sun goes down or the lights go out, this camera switches on its own onboard infrared LED lights. These lights, which are invisible to the human eye, allow the camera to continue functioning and recording video 24/7, day or night. And since its IR range covers up to 100ft, you're not going to miss anything that happens on your camera's feeds, even if it happens in pitch-black darkness.
The NSC-218G-DM is a part of our H-Series line of products. As such, it's packed with features that would please a power user, yet it's simple enough to operate for a novice. Easily view and manage your cameras and recorders anywhere in the world with the free mobile and desktop applications. For the power user, these apps give you the power to adjust advanced settings on the fly. For the novice, you can use the apps to simply view live feeds and play back recorded video. Whatever you need to accomplish, it's all right there at your fingertips.
Plug & Play
If you're creating a new system out of our H-Series cameras, set up is insanely easy with our H-Series line of POE NVRs. Simply plug the camera into the back of the H-Series NVR and you have instant video on the recorder's HDMI interface. You can also view and manage the NVR through free desktop and mobile apps, such as Hik-Connect and iVMS-4200.
If you want to add this camera to a security system already set up, that’s no problem. This camera complies with the protocols set by the Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF). This means, as long as your current recorder is ONVIF compatible, you’ll be able to set this camera up with your current system.
Verified PurchaseI really love this camera. That's why I bought 3 of them to place around the perimeter of my home. I enjoy having the ability to choose resolutions of 2160p down to 720p, and do so depending on which part of the house the camera is monitoring (e.g., 2160p for front door; 1440p for back door with minimal traffic). I have these cameras paired with the 8 channel 4k NVR which made set up a breeze. Plug the ethernet cable from the camera to the NVR and you'll be ready to go within minutes.
Verified PurchaseI have had this camera up and running for about 8 months now, and it has been rock solid. Great daytime image, and good night vision. It was a breeze to set up, and overall I have been extremely satisfied with this purchase. You can get very good facial details out to about 30-35 feet during the day, which is impressive considering it is a 2.8mm lens. It does fairly well on storage considering it is 8mp. I record motion only and get about 7-10 days worth of footage on a 128GB SD card. I just wish they offered 4mm and 6mm lens options.
Verified PurchaseGreat camera for a great price. Plug n play as advertised. I wish they were available in other focal lengths.
Verified PurchaseIn comparing this 4k camers to a previously installed 3k cameras...though there is a slight difference in the picture, it did noy give me the improvement I was expecting. I still cannot make out the lisence tag numbers on the cars directly across the street!This camera was set up by Nellys and I asked for the highest resolution, so it must be the camera and not the setup.
I will submit a screen shot comparison so you can see the difference. I think you will be hard pressed to tell the difference.
Verified PurchaseFor the past 2 years we have been selling mostly the 4mp cameras. Customers love them and the price point is fantastic. Since these 4k's have came out, customers want want want. The image quality in great and price is also great. These are an easy sale due to everyone is all about 4k. If you want to read license plates from greater than 40 ft, buy the motorized zoom model. At 2.8mm even with 4k reading license plates at a distance is tough. Speed, lighting, focal length all come into play.
Verified PurchaseReally impressed with this 4K dome camera , not only does it have a great picture but it has a solid build construction. I mounted it over my driveway and it should hold up very well in the weather.
